“Excellent location, awesome staff, but watch out for the air conditioner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

The hotel was exactly what we were looking for in a family vacation to the DC area. It was just a few blocks walk to the Metro station so the free shuttle that they offered wasn't even necessary. The hotel was clean and the staff could not have been more helpful and accommodating. The breakfast in the mornings were amply stocked no matter how early or late you came down and the pool was luxurious with a life guard who could not have been nicer. The valet parking was efficient and if you called ahead, your car was waiting for you. The rooms were fine though a bit tight with the pull out sofa and a cot. But we did utilize the well equipped kitchen accessories. The only issue we had was that the air conditioner was located directly next to the bed and so it blew a cold draft on us the entire night. The noise when the thermostat kicked in was loud and the blowing was unpleasant. The layout of the room was poor. Other than that, we were very happy with the hotel.

Room Tip: look at the layout of the particular room to make sure your bed is not on top of the air conditioner...

Would like to say that there are competitive prices in DC, thus the price at Silver Spring has to be competitive, rather than being on the expensive side. Took Metro from MD to DC. Parking close by at a Public Parking lot with weekdays at 60 cents per hour, free from 7.00 pm to 7.00 am on weekdays and weekends.

It was a little strange that it is combined with a Hampton Inn with two different check in locations. Everything was standard homewood suites. Breakfast and dinner were good. Of course the managers reception was good too. Beer was nice and cold, etc.

My concern regarding this property was the parking. I am not usually a fan of valet service but the valet crews were stupendous and I am not kidding when I say my family felt like they were being welcomed home each time we got back from an outing. Belay was especially great. We were in town for six nights for a competition at College Park. We were allowed to leave our van each day in the drive to go change. The complimentary breakfast and dinner were top notch and well tended to by staff. They even encouraged us to take take out the one night we had to leave before dinner. If there was one concern if was the front desk set up. The desk is shared with the Hampton and our person seemed to always be over there instead of manning the phone. This in no way changes my excellent rating. Great rooms and service.
Considering the great amenities and the fact that they had the lowest rates for what we were looking for, we would definitely book this location again.

Room Tip: first room was a corner room, the others were much larger and at the same rate.

I stayed at the Homewood Suites for work travel. The room was attractive, roomy and comfortable and fast wifi was included.
I stayed on a weekday night. On weekdays the room fee included both supper and breakfast the next day! The meal which was included with the stay was very nice with lots of offerings and healthy too! Being on a short work trip, it was nice to be able to eat right at the hotel.
The staff was friendly and helpful. The valet staff kindly offered to give me directions to my next destination. Also, they offered to quickly retrieve an item for me that I had left behind in my room.
~A very nice spot in this location. I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed at the Homewood Suites - Silver Spring with family for a July Weekend getaway visit to Washington DC using Hilton Points. This is a 14 story hotel, (shared with sister property Hampton Inn) in the middle of the Silver Spring, MD.

Parking - Hotel is located in town, a few miles south of the 495 Beltway. You can valet park for $16 per day as there is no on site parking, however on the weekends (7PM Fri - 7AM Mon), parking is free at the garage around the corner located at Fenton St & Cameron St.

Check in - we were traveling with another family and asked for rooms close to each other. Unfortunately we were told the hotel was sold out. The girl at the desk did attempt to make this happen for us, but said she was new to the job and after a few minutes of looking at the computer screen said she could make it work - not a big deal.

Room - One of the main reasons we went with Homewood, was based on a stay at their property in Baltimore's Inner Harbor last summer. There, we had a decent sized kitchen/living room area with separate bedroom area with two double beds. Our room at this location was smaller, with a kitchen utility area just inside the door and then a large room with a double bed and pull out couch. I went to the front desk and asked about having a room with 2 double beds, but was told that all of the Homewood rooms here had 1 bed and a pull out couch. In the end, it wasn't a huge dissatisfier and we made it work. The bathroom was spacious with plenty of hot water. The exhaust vent in the bathroom was LOUD, yet for all the noise seemed to accomplish nothing. The air temp & fan control didn't seem to be working correctly as the wall display kept flashing all sorts of numbers and letters when you touched it and the fan seemed to run constantly, that said the room temp was never too hot or cold. The room was clean and well maintained and the bed was super comfortable.

Dining - We ate breakfast there on Sat & Sun mornings. Food was good, with plenty of items to choose from. Eggs, sausage, bacon, potatoes, pancakes, oatmeal, fruit, cold cereal, pastries, etc. While we didnt get to try it, Homewood does offer complimentary dinners Sunday thru Thursday nights as well.

Location - Because we stayed here on a weekend, for dinner, the front desk directed us towards "Downtown Silver Spring" on Ellsworth Dr about a block and half away. This is a pedestrian mall area, with many dining options for all types of budgets. On Friday night there was even a local band playing on the street. Another one of the main reasons we chose this location was for access to the Metro Station in Silver Spring, which is about 3 1/2 blocks (half mile) from the hotel. Easily walkable, which we did, but the hotel can provide a shuttle we were told. For reference, the weekend rate for a round trip from Silver Spring to Smithsonian stop (requires one transfer) is $7.50 per person and takes around 20 minutes if you time things right.

Overall a good place to stay and I would consider coming back for a similar trip.

I recently took a new job in Silver Spring which requires that I spend some time out here on a regular basis. In checking the properties, I first selected the Silver Spring Homewood Suites based on their having very competitive rates. Boy what that a great decision. The property is only a few blocks from the center of downtown Silver Spring. The rooms are clean and spacious, and the staff is very friendly.

I did not try their free breakfast, but that is not a comment on them, but more on me. One of my habits is to visit the local Starbucks to start my day (3 blocks away). The hotel is about 9 blocks from the Metro stop, so it's very convenient for getting anywhere in the district as well.

Room Tip: Higher is always better.
